Today, Jan 23rd, is the Chinese New Year and we’ll be celebrating with a fun giveaway from Barefoot Books (publishers of some very awesome and totally unique reads for kids)!

Two lucky winners will receive a copy of The Great Race, a beautifully illustrated book that tells the story of the formation of the Chinese Calendar.

“Once, many moons ago, the people of China had no calendar. With no way to measure time, nobody could tell one year from the next…

‘I’ll hold a race!’ the Jade Emperor decided. ‘Yes – a swimming race across a wide river! I will name the years in the order  that the animals finish.’”

With bright characters and engaging text, The Great Race is a delightful way to talk about the unique Chinese calendar with little ones. The book includes an informative fact sheet at the end of the story and a fun section to discover which animal represents the year of your birth (which the kinds will LOVE).

To enter: head over to the Barefoot Books facebook page and “like” them–then, make sure you are  a fan of Mothering on facebook and leave a comment here in the blog to enter.

For a second entry: share this giveaway with friends and leave a second comments letting us know that you did.

Rules: Two winners will be drawn randomly on Thurs, Jan 26thth at 5pm ET from all entries. US Residents only, except where prohibited. Two entries per person, one for liking and one for sharing.
